Illegal fishing threatening global food supplies

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in disruptions to global food-distribution networks, and in the aftermath, it will be more important than ever to address the issue of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

Globally, seafood consumption has continued to climb in recent years as the unprecedented growth of a middle class around the world has resulted in increased demand.

At least 3 billion people rely on farmed or wild-caught seafood as their primary source of protein, while more than 4.3 billion people get at least 15% of their animal protein intake from fish and other seafood.
